Hawks fans rain down 'OVER-RATED!' chant on beaten-down Pacers late in Game 3 win (Video)

I mentioned this briefly in Thursday's post about Jeff Teague's utterly bonkers 3-pointer late in the Atlanta Hawks' 98-85 Game 3 win over the Indiana Pacers to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven first-round playoff series, but since the video's been captured and broken out, let's revisit the oft-maligned but full-throated Philips Arena faithful raining down "OVER-RATED" chants on the beaten No. 1 seeds during the final minute of play: Hey, Pacers? Ya burnt. Ya burnt so bad. Offensively, Indiana is averaging less than one point per possession in this postseason; defensively, the Pacers are letting the Hawks fire up a whopping 31 3-pointers per game and shoot a shade under 61 percent at the rim. The Pacers were outscored by 2.1 points per 100 possessions after the All-Star break, making them one of only two playoff teams with a negative point differential down the stretch; the other is the team that has beaten them two out of the last three games. That malaise has continued into the postseason, on both ends of the floor.
